EPFL Pavilions is proud to announce that the exhibition Cosmos Archaeology will be travelling to China, presented as a new version at the Shanghai Astronomy Museum from 18 May to 17 September 2024!

This new version titled Cosmos Archaeology, Exploring the Universe through Art and Science was curated by Prof. Sarah Kenderdine, Prof. Jean-Paul Kneib and independent curator Iris Long and originated in a collaboration between EPFL, the Shanghai Astronomy Museum and Swissnex in China. It features works from the original exhibition along with new installations, with the aim to inspire ever broader audiences with the marvels of space, through the encounter of art and science.

The result of a two-year collaboration, the original exhibition presented at EPFL Pavilions in 2022 was curated by Prof. Sarah Kenderdine (Director of EPFL's Laboratory for Experimental Museology, eM+, and Director and Lead Curator of EPFL Pavilions) and Prof. Jean-Paul Kneib (Director of EPFL's Laboratory of Astrophysics, LASTRO). It welcomed a record number of 15,000 visitors over five months and proved a wonderful success among visitors of all ages and backgrounds, asserting our society's ever-renewed fascination for space.
